Grow Groups

If you desire to connect at First Church, Grow Groups are a great way to do so. What are Grow Groups?

  • Grow Groups are intergenerational groups that include every man and woman and child who calls First CRC home.
  • Currently, Grow Groups meet about every 5-6 weeks, September through May.
  • At Grow Groups, we grow as a family of God by living our Christian faith, freely sharing our lives and humbly embracing the hurting.
  • Each group has an elder and deacon team who want to know and serve the people in their group. When you have a need, joy or concern to share, feel free to contact the elder/deacon in your group.

Anyone can get connected to a Grow Group. If you would like to participate, please email Shirley Van Heukelem at Come and let those in different ages & stages influence your faith!

For the 2019 educational year we offered Grow Group IN (community) & UP (time in God's Word) sessions, focusing on shared meals together and a time to reflect on how God is working in our lives. We will also offer various opportunities throughout the year to work on a variety of OUT (Service) activities as we assess where there is a felt need.

Call the church office if you have any questions about plugging in to Grow Groups. Everyone is welcome, and each session is designed so you can join in at any time. Pictured below are Grow group participants OUTserving while strengthening relationships with staff and residents of a local Senior care facility.
